Tim McCreight is a renowned metalsmith, designer, author, and teacher. His metalsmith books have become the standard text for classrooms and work shops. This Professional Edition is twice as large as the student edition. It covers the same material, but goes into greater depth with expanded information for serious artists. A rigid fabric cover and elastic band make this a place to store sketches and notes; more than a book, its a practical tool for instruction and reference. Includes 1600 color drawings. 312 pages.
